A Good Gmail Experience with User Agent Change


(Asa Dotzler) #1

Today I tested Gmail with my user agent spoofing Android Chrome and I got a much better experience than the HTML version or the Desktop version (which you can get by spoofing Firefox’s UA).

Using WebIDE, set general.useragent.override.mail.google.com to Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.0.4;) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.133 Mobile Safari/535.19 or similar and Gmail works well.

Just a fyi, Here is the buglink: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=668275

Tried to change ‘general.useragent.override’ to ‘Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.0.4;) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.133 Mobile Safari/535.19’, but if has no effect (tested also on http://whatsmyuseragent.com/).

Aren’t foxfooding builds restricted for changing this preference?
